your initial post concerned me, leaving me wondering if you had a broader listening experience to Pig. As you see there are a lot of fine examples of his craft-work. He was unique and a gentle bear who poured his soul out , just like Janis. Thanx to the Archive replies to justify Pigs abilities.

I have listened to most likely 95% of what he sang with the band between 1968 through 6/17/72 so I have a very broad listening experience.

I think Pig and Janis are a perfect comparison in that both are highly over rated as singers. Perhaps they were great performers...i.e...you had to be there, to get it. But, having not been there, I just don't get the hype.
